Sketchbook vol. 2 | Goal: Make it to page 100 | 3% complete
Welcome to my Sketchbook.
Enjoy your stay!
After a year or so without drawing I've get back in the ring, let's hope I make some progress this time around.

Not too shabby! I like your portrait studies. I think a good exercise would be to set up a still life or something that's really well lit. By that I mean the scene should have a bright highlight and a dark shadow in it. It seems that in a lot of your drawings, the range of value is less than it could be, and that could be due to what you are drawing from.
Good luck and keep it up!

Update 3: Posemaniacs - 90 seconds
Was short on time tonight, tomorrow's update should be a little more interesting.
lemming-clone-: Cheers! I guess the reference could have been better so far as shadows and highlights are concerned, might be time to push the contrast up a notch. Still life sounds like a great idea, I think I'm going to set one up tomorrow if I've got enough time, thanks for the advice, much appreciated!

Update 4: drawing from life
I decided to go out and buy a few lamps and a little table so I can start drawing objects from life rather than the computer screen. I think it's going to help a lot in the long run, thanks for the advice lemming-clone-.
Just a quick one tonight approx 20 mins.

You look at the water kettle slightly from above, but the bottom line is drawn as if you were looking at it at a right angle. I suggest to practice on how to draw perfect ellipses. I know it might seem dull but it comes in handy when drawing geometrical objects in the right perspective.

Update 7: study
Shortly after taking this picture I just so happened to smudge charcoal (which had accumulated on my right hand) straight accross her face which resulted in a trip to the bin. I wasn't too happy with where it was going anyway
libellchen: Thanks! I think you're right on the money, I've taken note for next time, cheers for the tip

Good to see you are pushing yourself intro trying new things. I also had a similar issue at one point, with having another sketchbook and loosing interest/life happening scenario. I would say keep working on those gesture drawings, you are on the right track.

Wow, you're working hard and you've chosen some good studies. Keep up the pace and I believe you'll have noticeable improvements in only one to two more thread pages!
And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.
